The United Nations Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 states that in case of a disaster, the death rate is at least two times higher among persons with disabilities. In this regard, Ecuadorian Government through its Technical Secretariat for the Inclusive Management on Disabilities (SETEDIS) ensure the coordination of cross-sector implementation of public policy to incorporate inclusive strategies for the promotion of equal rights and opportunities for all in the case of an emergency or risk within the Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction Strategy under the national program "Ecuador Lives the Inclusion" (Programa Ecuador Vive la Inclusion).
